First, I want to say that I have various issues with the game. However, after some reflection, 95-100% of the issues that I have, ultimately come back to me being a newcomer to Madden. I can live with that. I would like to try to improve my game though. BobJr told me yesterday in a pm "For Instance Throw Accuracy means nothing in Madden, but the Short Accuracy, Medium Accuracy, Deep Accuracy is what you should base your quarterback on." I did understand what he meant with that but it doesn't necessarily help me with my issue throwing the ball. My biggest issue throwing the ball is I can't seem to throw ball over the defender in coverage. This is no matter how far the defender is away from the receiver. It does not matter if it is a LB or CB. Sometimes, it's a DE/DT. My main example is Matt Ryan in my solo online CCM. His ratings are THP 89 SAC 91 MAC 88 DAC 74 AWR 86 8 Interceptions in 3 games. My biggest concern for using him as QB is not the deep pass. I still try to throw it but I don't expect success very often. Most of Matt Ryan's interceptions are on passes thrown between 10-20 yards, most are by defenders trailing the play and leaping(ball hawk) to make the pick. I know I am terrible at the game. I know I am doing something that is really wrong when I am throwing the ball. My problem is that I am not seeing it. What I am seeing that is wrong is at times that when I throw pass that I am trying to lead the receiver, I am doing something wrong. Usually pass is behind receiver, causing him to stop and make catch. Most of these passes are either caught, or receiver gets crushed. I think he gets crushed anyway though. These passes aren't intercepted though, at least in games where Matt Ryan is my QB. I have other examples as well. However, for the sake of this discussion, Matt Ryan has the best passing attributes of the 3 CCMs I am in. Fixing this should improve my game. I may not win more games, but I hope this would help me be more competitive, both vs user and cpu.
